The Husband of Venus

Acrylic on paper, September 2022

45.7 x 61 cm



This work is part of the “Venus Series” an attempt to question beauty standards and their fluidity. My venuses are not slim, and we can hardly make up their face. Their egg-shaped body is a sign of fertility and warmth. They are like a meditating buddhas. Every venus has a lover. Here is “The Husband of Venus”, i.e., the man, the companion, the partner. His being is inextricably linked to hers.
